Rated 88 by Wine Advocate
Dark, luscious and rich, the Mauro Molino 2019 Barbera d'Asti LeRadici offers some dried fruit on the bouquet, along with crushed stone, powdery earth and dried cardamom or carob bean. The wine shows a dried nutty or hazelnut aroma that takes away from the fruit purity, especially a few minutes after the wine is poured into your glass. There is sweet blackberry or cherry confit on the close. ... More details

Varietal: Barbera

For centuries, wineries in Italy have prized their excellent Barbera grapes. This is a particularly vigorous varietal which grows well on many different soil types, so long as it has enough exposure to a Mediterranean style climate, with long, hot summers ideal for ripening the fruit and intensifying their unique flavors Barbera grapes are much loved in their native Italy and in many of the New World countries which are beginning to experiment with them, and their popularity has soared over recent years as more and more people are discovering their intense flavors of blueberries, raspberries and dried fruits. Many wineries prefer to age their grape juiced in oak barrels, which causes the Barbera varietal to pick up intense and spicy notes of vanilla and other such flavors, making for a delightfully complex yet light bodied wine perfect for drinking on sunny days.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
